BIALL is the leading professional body in the UK and Ireland for information professionals working with legal information. BIALL is a self-supporting association which draws its income primarily from membership subscriptions. Membership is available in the following categories: Personal, Institutional, Unemployed/Retired and Student.

BIALL supports the professional development of its members by organising regular training events, at both a national and regional level, and through the publication of its quarterly journal Legal Information Management. The Annual Conference is also an important event for BIALL members, providing an opportunity to learn about and discuss, formally and informally, the key issues affecting the legal information profession. BIALL has strong links with international legal information associations and offers bursaries to attend overseas conferences as well as its own conference.

Practical support and advice is also given for the day to day issues affecting legal information professionals through a number of schemes run by the BIALL committees and publications, including the BIALL Newsletter, the Handbook of Legal Information Management and the Annual Salary Survey.
